PreS-Gr. 2. Raccoon best friends Hunter and Stripe do everything together, from learning to read to playing basketball. Things change, however, after they end up on different soccer teams. Obviously only one team can win, but as the raccoons learn, friendship and playing one's best are more important than winning. This second book about the two friends once again puts an expressive raccoon cast into activities and situations kids will easily recognize and relate to. The descriptive prose and colorful, detailed art are lively and appealing, and together convey the joys and challenges of friendships and good sportsmanship. Soccer fans will enjoy the play-by-play description of the final game, and adults will find the on-field verbal sparring between the two coach-dads a reminder of setting a good example. A story touched with humor and sympathy and about what matters most, on and off the field. Shelle Rosenfeld
